FA Cup fourth round qualifying draw

By James Gordon

Six Northern Premier League clubs are 90 minutes away from the FA Cup first round proper.

Marske United’s reward for their terrific 1-0 win over Blyth Spartans on Wednesday night is a 424-mile round trip to face National League North side Brackley Town in the fourth qualifying round.

All six NPL clubs were kept apart, while none were fortunate enough to receive the bye through to the first round, caused by the withdrawal of Macclesfield Town - that went to Chorley.

Marske’s N/West Division rivals Marine landed an away tie at Chester, while fellow step four club Ilkeston Town have a home game with Hartlepool United.

Premier Division sides South Shields, FC United and Stafford Rangers all got home ties, against Halifax Town, Guiseley and Skelmersdale United respectively.

Games will take place on Saturday October 24th.

Ties involving NPL sides:

Stafford Rangers v Skelmersdale United
South Shields v FC Halifax Town
Ilkeston Town v Hartlepool United
FC United v Guiseley
Brackley Town v Marske United
Chester v Marine
